Remember those WIP cushions I posted about, and how it was one of my goals to complete them before taking on any further sewing projects? Well, those cushions are finally complete.
These are pretty straightforward to make, and a good way to create cushions a little more interesting than a straight slip cover. I created four quilt sandwiches of fabric-batting-backing (two for each cushion), the same as I would if I was creating a full quilt. I then used free motion quilting all over the sandwich, starting in the centre and working my way out.
I used self-covered buttons in the centre of each cushion, which I attached to each side of the cushion using a long doll needle. I found that one of the cushions was a little dense (possibly a tiny bit too small for the cover I'd made), and so getting the needle through was very tough.
I'm hoping to add a few more cushions to our bed (if Jay will let me... he's of the "what's the point of cushions?" school of thought). I'm thinking a nice grey one, for a start.
Where do you stand on cushions? For, against, or mostly indifferent?
